South Padre Island's newest and finest hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, invites you to travel Mexico & Texas in ONE VACATION to South Padre. You'll experience the white sand beaches and crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As you enter our lobby, you will be immersed in tropical elegance. Check in will be a breeze as you and your family escape into our sea life - a 500 gallon aquarium. All our oversized rooms come with spectacular views of Laguna Madre Bay, Gulf of Mexico or our tropical poolside. If you're here for business, relax - we offer free wireless Internet in all public areas and high speed Internet access in every room as well as a complimentary full service business center. For the ultimate in convenience, all rooms have micro-fridges, coffee makers, dataport speaker phones and state-of-the art on demand movies/music and video games. Thanks to the latest technology, on demand movies can be paused/rewound so you'll never miss an important phone call. We are across the street from the Convention Center and close to championship golf, nightclubs, shopping centers and a variety of eateries. Visit Sea Turtle, Inc. or spend the day at Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park. The beach is just a short walk from your room where you can participate in deep sea fishing, horseback riding, parasailing, jet skiing or a local favorite - barbecuing on the beach. We are the perfect tropical getaway whether you're here for business or pleasure.

This place is a mix of good and bad. Breakfast is very hit and miss, but one thing it is always missing is real butter. They have ony one choice and that is an extremely cheap whipped margarine. Really unacceptable. The rest of the place seems mostly in need of repair.

Butterflies1224, Seeing your nice ratings on our service and hotel value is very uplifting. But I'm disappointed at the same time as your stay was only average due to the issues you had with our breakfast options, fitness room, beds and amenities. Our aim is to provide a trouble-free experience, and what you described certainly fell short of that. I've noted your feedback and shared this with the hotel. They will make sure that actions are taken so this does not happen again. Thank you for being our guest and for choosing to stay with us! We hope to accommodate you again for chance to provide you with a much better stay. Best regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

While the hotel is under construction, it’s open and worth a visit. It’s a 400 yard walk to the beach but based on the price it’s a great value. Quite rooms and a good breakfast is included. In room refrigerator.

This hotel is on the north end of the strip and, while not immediately on the beach, has easy access. It's about a 5 minute walk. At this time (December '18), the hotel is undergoing extensive renovation-- including demolition of the hot tub. The outdoor pool was very cold,

jetsly, I'm sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy your stay because of the ongoing renovations and the issues you had with our pool. What you described certainly isn't what we want for you. I've noted your feedback and shared this with the hotel. They will make sure that actions will be taken so this does not happen again. We would like to make it up to you, so when you visit the area again, I hope you give us another try. Thanks for choosing to stay with us! Regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService
